Hart Writes A “Chinese Odyssey”

Scribe James V. Hart (“Hook,” “Dracula”) will pen the script for English-language 3D action adventure fantasy “Chinese Odyssey” for Tiger 62 Media, China Film Group and Beijing Galloping Horse Film & TV says Variety.

Described as a supernatural ocean-set adventure story, the Homer-esque tale follows a hero on a journey to fulfil his destiny and along the way faces ancient mysteries, deadly sea monsters and several larger-than-life characters.

Rob Minkoff (“The Lion King,” “The Forbidden Kingdom”) directs and will produce with Pietro Ventani. Shooting plans to kick off in China around next spring.
